How to Use FX Eyes Instant Lift Tapes

How to Use FX Eyes Instant Lift Tapes

Facelift Tapes are one of Hollywood's best kept makeup secrets - they snatch and lift your skin to sculpt your features so that you can pull off new and stunning looks day after day. 

This means that you don't have to go under the knife for eyebrows like Kendall Jenner's. Those high and mighty cheekbones that Bella Hadid sports could be in your next Insta selfie. The science behind Instant Lift Tapes is simple - by tugging at the right places of your face, these tapes modify your features for a more photogenic and glamorous appearance. The perfect face is not a distant dream anymore! 

How do you get it? Here's a lowdown! 

USING THE FX EYES INSTANT LIFT FACE KIT 

Basic Skin Prep:

  • Wash your face thoroughly. 
  • Find the sweet spots where you want the lift for an instant makeover. 
  • In front of a mirror, do the "FX Pose' - put your hand lightly up to your forehead, temple, or cheeks to lift the desired area.
  • Ensure these spots are dry and oil-free by cleansing with rubbing alcohol/ oil-free make-up remover.

    Prepare the Lifts: 

    • You work with a pair of elastic strings - one which has eyelets and another shorter string which has hooks on both ends. 
    • Loop the hooks that are on the ends of the elastic through the hole in the tapes.
    • You will have to remove a small part of the protective paper in order to attach it. Do not remove it completely until you are ready to apply them.

    Application:

    • Tie your hair up into a half bun to create a partition into which your tie-ups will go.
    • Take out the protective covering from the tape and apply it on the skin. Rub a few seconds to ensure proper adhesion.
    • Slowly pull the elastic threads to lift/pull back your skin. Now secure the two threads at the back using the loop and hook.
    • Ensure the tension is right. Detach your hair and voila! You're all set!
    • Apply makeup as usual.

    Pro Tips:

    Once you know the lift you want to create and the adequate tension, for future use, you can use your elastic already looped to the hole so that you won't have to fasten it again. 

    You may use a hair pin to hold the elastics in place after securing them into your hair.

    Where can you apply the tapes

    Forehead and Temples

    The tapes are applied on the temples or above the eyebrows to lift them for a feline eye look. 

    Cheeks: 

    The tapes are applied in front of the ears. The thread goes into your hairdo. With the right pull it defines your contours and sculpts your face.

    USING THE FX EYES INSTANT LIFT JAWLINE + NECK KIT

    Basic Skin Prep:

    • Wash your face thoroughly. 
    • On your jawline and/on neck, find the spot where you want to create the lift.
    • In front of a mirror, do the "FX Pose' - put your hand lightly up to your jawline to lift the desired area.
    • Ensure these spots are dry and oil-free by cleansing with rubbing alcohol/ oil-free make-up remover.

    Prepare the Lifts: 

    • There are two elastics. One long for the jawline and one short for the neck.
    • Add a tape to each hook of the elastic, by looping the hook through the hole in the tapes.
    • You will have to remove a small part of the protective paper in order to attach it. Do not remove it completely.
    • Ensure the hook is on the outside, not against the skin.

     

    Application:

    • Tie your hair up into a bun or with a hair clip to work on a free area.
    • Take out the protective covering from the tape and apply it on the skin. Rub a few seconds to ensure proper adhesion.
    • Detach hair to conceal Instant Lifts.

    Where can you apply the tapes

    Jawline Instant Lift

    For a razor sharp jawline, apply the tapes just under your ears so that the elastic string goes behind the ears and tightens your skin.

    Neck Instant Lift

    In case you want to lift up the skin on your neck and give your neck a firmer, longer appearance, then use our neck instant lift tapes. Apply them a little above the base of the neck so that the string at the back tightens the skin.  

    How to make the most of your FX EYES INSTANT LIFT makeover

    • After applying the lift, proceed to apply makeup as usual. Use your primer and foundation over the tapes. 
    • After applying tapes and makeup, pull down your bun and style your hair as usual. We recommend that you have a few strands of hair around your face or a slightly messy hairdo to avoid any obvious sighting of the tape or the elastic.
    • For the same reason, always pick elastic that is closest to your hair color. For the neckline and jawline lifts that remain on the skin, we recommend using a string close to your skin color. 
    • Use a fresh tape each time you want an instant lift. Simply thread the elastic strings into two refill tapes and you have a fresh pair of lifts. 
    • If applied correctly, the lift should not irritate your skin. Discontinue its use temporarily if sensitivity occurs. The lifts can be used for 10-12 hours with optimal results.
    • To remove the lift, simply unfasten the loop from the back or just take off the tapes. Clean your skin normally.
